I was very fortunate, just before Christmas to be contacted by a couple of ppl to review some lovely maternity wear. Bumpalicious do some fabulous dresses and I decided that for once, I wouldn’t be sensible and choose the dress that just possibly I could wear more than once, I’d choose a dress I could feel fabulous in for a special family day – Christmas.
I went daring. I went red. And I didn’t regret it.
I did (slightly) regret not taking the time to find a tape measure and working my way through the whole of the questionnaire on the Bumpalicious site. It appears I *may* have put on a little more weight than I expected to have done at this stage in pregnancy, and the dress was a little on the tight side. Completely my fault – the sizing is well arranged and if I weren’t blimping horribly (I am *not* telling you how much weight I’ve put on with months yet to go) it would have been perfect. As it was, I felt good in it, but it won’t I think do me til the end of pregnancy, supposing that I can find another opportunity to wear such a beautiful dress.
As a pure coincidence I was also offered some Emma Jane maternity tights to review, which teamed up with the dress perfectly. All in all, I felt good, I think I looked good, and I’d highly recommend both parts of the outfit.
